LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A pedestrian who was critically injured in a hit and run accident on Friday night passed away early Monday morning, according to officials with the Lubbock Police Department.

The pedestrian has been identified as 24-year-old Alejandro Hernandez.

Lubbock police are searching for the driver who hit him while he was walking along 5th and Slide Road. Officers say the driver left the scene after the incident that happened just before 10:07 p.m. Emergency officials found the pedestrian at 4th and Slide Road.

Hernandez was immediately taken to UMC with life-threatening injuries.
